Being mentally strong is realizing the difference between stress and pressure. Pressure is when we feel something that we value is at stake depending on what we do. Stress is when we feel we have too many demands and not enough time, money or energy.
Stress is easier because we have choices, like cut things from our to do list, decide we don’t need to buy that thing or ask for help. Pressure is goal oriented and personal.
When we can reduce our stress, we have more energy to work on things that are causing us pressure.
Let us let our stress go and effectively manage our pressure today.
